In large German cities the eyes are already wide when looking at real estate prices – with this advertisement from the USA, however, it gets very strange.
Munich – Anyone who has been on the lookout for apartments or houses lately has certainly checked their account to see what is possible at all. Even during the corona pandemic, prices in major German cities remained at a high level. Jokes are stubbornly circulating on the Internet in which broom closets and garbage dumps are titled “800 euros cold in Munich”.
In the USA, a completely different advertisement is now causing a stir. Not just an apartment, an underground parking space or a house is being sold there – no, an entire village is up for sale there. For $ 2.75 million. A considerable sum, but why is an entire village being sold right away?

Her husband convinced her, they raised a son there. But her husband died in 2016. In 2017 the American Green company wanted to make the place a “marijuana mecca” and bought the place for 5 million dollars, part of which was financed by Roxanne Lang.
After the initial events, there were no payments. The head of American Green saw many “unexpected complications”. After the attempt, the village returned to Lang’s possession. Now she is still trying to sell the place.
